    It’s only appropriate that I start this thread… So getting it up now. Might be the only time in my life the two teams play, and I can’t even watch! Sigh…

    Enjoy the game, all!

    Go Dawgs…!

    We Are…!

    Which means 4/31 against Butler. I’ve seen this story a lot…

    Hope so!

    Interesting thing about PSU is how small they are. The primary lineup features no one over 6-7.

    Will likely be among the smallest front courts we play all year.

    Winthrop is similarly tiny, so it makes sense I suppose that they had no issues with them. Conversely, they almost lost a scrimmage to George Mason, a team with two true bigs.

    It’s a good match up for Butler, and it would be a spectacular match up if Butler were fully healthy.

    It’s also a good matchup if we still have some front court players out. It gives us 2 weeks of buffer to get people healthy before Atlantis. I think Simas will be able to hold its own a little better if he has to play the 4 and Hughes will be able to feel more comfortable guarding someone his own size.

    PSU only has 4 forwards on their roster (2 are FR) and they combined for 12 of their 93 points.

    Meanwhile UNO had 7 players over 6’7” who bullied us a bit when Bates wasn’t in.

    I would think Pierce Thomas might have a larger role (thinking defensively) against a smaller Penn St. team.

    PSU plays Loyola MD tonight at 7, in case anyone wants to “scout”.

    Looking forward to watch BU perform on the road. It should provide somewhat of a measurement of what we can expect in the future. Early road tests are a good thing...

    Believe Penn State is playing Loyola Marymount on the BIG network tonight.

    Penn state is 8/16 from 3 so far in this game. So they’re now 26/54 in 3 halves this year so far.

    Geesh. These guys can shoot.

    Last game they shot around fifty percent on around 38 attempts. They are running an NBA offense. At half time 20 of their 30 attempts were threes hitting 50%

    Depaul beat Loyola Maryland by six a couple of nights ago.

    Did the red pinnies shrink in the wash?!?! When Jalen Thomas starts practicing, I don't think he'll be able to get one those things over his head

    For those that have watched, are PSU's shooters getting good looks? Or are they knocking down both good ones and bad ones?
    Amazing how much having good shooters can erase all other kinds of problems.

    I haven’t watched either of their games but 34-68 from three in 2 games certainly gets my attention.
